michael bloomberg who said they, meaning the nra, offered a paranoid vision of a more dangerous and violent america where everyone is armed and no place is same. the nra as's lobbyists blamed everyone but nems for the crisis of gun violence. this is the new senator and he tweeted out walking out of another funeral and handed the nra transcript, the most revolting, tone-deaf statement i've seen. can i get your reaction to that reaction? >> well, live by my own statements, and i hope they look at those as well. they want to focus the debate on new laws and new prohibitions, and i'm saying that's the wrong debate. that's their solution. i believe a better solution is school safety initiatives, one of those options being an armed presence we have in one-third of the schools. p if you have an option of sending a child to a school with an armed presence who are trained that can protect the children or a school that doesn't have that option, right now the polls show in america most people would select the more secure school, the one that invests in security. so let's help these schools

persuasions. new york city mayor michael bloomberg called the press conference a shameful evasion of the crisis facing our country. new jersey governor chris christie told reporters that armed guards won't make schools any safer. and senator-elect chris murphy of connecticut tweeted this earlier today. "walking out of another funeral, he was handed the nra transcript. the most revolting tone-deaf statement i've ever seen." indeed. right before wayne lapierre delivered his remarks, a gunman shot and killed three people in pennsylvania. one of the victims was a woman hanging up christmas decorations in a church. let's turn to virginia congressman jim moran. congressman, good to have you with us tonight. appreciate your time. always good to have you with us, jim, on this program. thank you. >> thank you, ed. >> what is -- what do you make of today's press conference, the reaction of the national rifle association? >> well, wayne lapierre works for the gun manufacturers. he really doesn't represent the majority of the members who are far more sane and responsible than the leadership i
, is that the president has been a little michael corleone towards the republicans in the negotiations with boehner and that essentially he is saying when boehner says, i'll give you this, i'll give you this, i think the president is saying this is what i'll give you, nothing. he doesn't want to reduce spending. the republicans are willing to bend on taxes but spending is where the real action is, and i really do think that this may go up to the end and may go over. >> i think that's very possible. matthew dowd, one of the things the white house will argue they did the spending cuts last year. no question of the president taking a firm line in these negotiations but speaking of the impossible situation, that peggy just mentioned, it does appear no matter what speaker boehner negotiates with the president, it is something that cannot get through his conference. >> well, first, merry christmas to you and your family and everybody here. happy holidays to all that and have a sticker my daughter made me wear santa claus until santa claus comes, better be nice and not naughty. i think this demonstrates,
